VICTORIA - Cody Fowlie and Tyrell Goulbourne each had three points as the Kelowna Rockets defeated the host Victoria Royals 7-2 on Saturday in Western Hockey League play.

Fowlie scored twice and added an assist for the Rockets (44-15-4), who also beat Victoria on Friday night, and Goulbourne had a goal and two assists.

Jesse Lees, Colton Sissons, MacKenzie Johnston and Tyson Baillie each scored once to round out Kelowna's offence.

Kelowna went 3 for 7 on the power play while Victoria scored once on five chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
